Station Plan 2016 - 2017
Eastleigh Fire Station covers all of Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford, Bishopstoke as well as the suburbs consisting of both B and C risk premises. The fireground is extremely diverse covering shopping centres, dense housing estates, new developments, information technology business and Southampton International Airport.
The pre-determined attendance (PDA) for the Airport is made up of 4 of Eastleigh's appliances solely for the provision of water to the Airport's heavy foam tenders. Eastleigh also covers the M27 and M3 motorways.
Eastleigh has the most appliances on station out of the whole of the service. There is one Water Tender Ladder which carries specialist cutting gear for RTAs. A Water Tender which has specialist ventilation fans for property fires and a second tender. A Water Carrier which can transport 10,000 litres of foam contentrate or water. A Multi-Role Vehicle which can be rigged for protracted incidents, animal rescues, decontamination, environmental hazards, foam firefighting for fuel spills, mass flooding, heath fires and marine incidents. And finally a Land Rover Tender which is used for restricted access jobs, forest firefighting and Winchester Prison.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service values its involvement in partnership working with other agencies. This joined up approach to reducing risk in the Test Valley and Eastleigh areas covered by the two district councils, has enabled us to reduce the number of arson related incidents over the past year.
